48

Three people suffered injuries in Utah after a teen driver drifted into oncoming traffic and slammed head-on into two cars, one of which captured the accident on dashcam footage, according to police.

The three-car collision happened around 5 p.m. Saturday on the Cory Wride Memorial Highway in Eagle Mountain, the Utah County Sheriff’s Office said.

The 17-year-old boy was driving in the westbound lanes when he drifted over the center median and crashed head-on into an eastbound vehicle, officials said.

Dashcam footage from the last vehicle struck shows the teen’s vehicle strike the first car before rolling over and spinning around a second car.
